  1. Like Sonic Youth reincarnated in Williamsburg, Black Dice evoke sublime psychological realms by making a racket. [5 Aug 2004, p.112]
  2. For all its surprises, Creature Comforts marks one of the first times Black Dice has sounded like a band in transition, and consequently lacks much of the serendipitous splendor of their previous efforts.
  3. 50
    Most of Creature Comforts is hypnotic, if hardly soothing, noisemaking. [Jul/Aug 2004, p.124]

    Such a good album for texture fiends. Bad album for retarded people (or maybe its the other way around...).

    THIS IS NOT GOOD MUSIC. Pretending to like it does not make you intelligent or cutting-edge! Nobody cares except you and your THIS IS NOT GOOD MUSIC. Pretending to like it does not make you intelligent or cutting-edge! Nobody cares except you and your pseudo-intellectual scenester friends. With that being said, I heard their new album actually has songs. I'm not exactly excited to hear it after listening to this mess. Full Review »
